a short time ago hillary clinton bid farewell to the department and the diplomats she has led for the last four years visiting more than 100 countries and becoming one of the most respected figures around the world in that process. >> i knew there was something really special about this place and that having the honor to lead the state department and usaid would be unique and singular, exciting, and challenging. it has been all of those things and so much more. >> as kerry prepares to take over, he may look back on this week as the last time he got a full night's sleep with a full roster of international crises awaiting his urgent attention. just today a suicide bomber at an entrance to the u.s. embassy in ankara, turkey, killed himself and an embassy security guard. the white house said it's working closely with turkish authorities to investigate what it's called a terrorist attack. meanwhile, violence escalated in egypt as thousands defy a curfew throwing molotov cocktails at the outer wall of the presidential compound. police have responded by firing water canons, rubber bullets, and te
marco rubio was trying and similarly we saw this in the hearing with hillary clinton, he was trying very hard to show that he is in command of the facts and he is ready to be, you know, presidential and handle this kind of information, and, instead, what he actually showed, particularly if you watch there's a little bit more to that exchange and it really shows how little he understands about how our relationships with foreign governments work, about how -- the role of the cia because there's this whole question -- part of what brennan had been talking about was whether or not this is a role the cia should continue to play in this instance. so instead he really revealed how little he understands and how hard he's trying to prove to all of us that he is -- he's got his big boy pants on. >> yes, indeed. mike, anyone who lost a family member in the attacks of 9/11 which were planned overseas is not going to have any problem with killing potential terrorists in afghanistan or in the yemen. but don't we need to confront the fact that if this is our strategy, then there is unlikely to be an en
, the president led a medal of honor ceremony for staff sergeant clinton remache whose actions during an attack helped save the lives of dozens of his comrades. and then there is the concerted effort by republicans to deny another distinguished veteran from serving his country as secretary of defense. a senate committee scheduled to vote on the nomination of chuck hagel tomorrow. senator john mccain says, i will not participate in any walkout of tomorrow's committee vote, which i guess is what counts for statesmanship among republicans these days, but as to whether mr. mccain will support his one-time friend, well, that remains a bit of a mystery. >> we've still got some more information. >> are you going to support him for defense secretary? >> i will see the rest of the answers to his questions, but certainly i have very grave concerns. i think we need some more information. >> of course, senator lindsey graham brings up an excellent point, one i'm sure more republicans will soon be asking, why stop at chuck hagel? >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorshi
to undocumented immigrants as lazy dogs, suggested hillary clinton's state department has ties to the muslim brother 450dhood, and that he doesn't know where the president was born, might targeting mr. king actually help mr. king in some way? >> it could, although here is what i think it does broadly for the republican party. it does mean whoever the ultimate nominee, republican nominee in that race is, has to figure out a way to bring all those voters back together to get enough vote to then run against a democratic opponent who won't have been so ideally beaten up during a primary. remember, it was this sort of republican on republican violence during the primary that gave us, you know, vul titure capitalism that was used in the general election. >> it was also one of the finest clown shows ever to be witnessed. >> it was. far be it to me to deny america such a wonderful show. it's interesting though because similarly republicans have sort of -- i think this gives democrats a very interesting opportunity to exploit these fractures within the republican party. jonathan is right that ultimat
clinton following the monica lewinsky affair declaring mr. clinton's behavior to be reprehensible. which has led some to conclude that the only god mr. sanford worships is the one who looks back at him when he's shaving. stay with us. the day's "top lines" are coming up. >> the more we examine the quality of these candidates from top to bottom, the more likely we end up with fewer christine o'donnelled and more rand pauls. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you've heard. led a pauls. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you've heard. led an. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you've heard. d and . >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you've heard. and m. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you've heard. s and . >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you've heard. what's? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead and bring it online. attention on site, attention on site. now starting unit nine. some of the world's cleanest gas turbines are now powering some of america's biggest cities. siemens. answers. for over 75 years people ...with geico... ohhh...sorry!. director's voice: here we go. from
-state landslide but claimed 119 counties. bill clinton won with 1,524 counties. do you know how many counties obama won last year? 690. that's it. 690. even though he won a convincing popular vote majority. gerrymandering wasn't a complete nonfactor in 2012. the gop probably did grab a few extra seats because of it. but the real problem for democrats is that their base of support is less spread out geographically than it's ever been, which means they can win presidential races and even control the senate, but when it comes to the house, their best, their only chance for the foreseeable future is a massive anti-gop tide, like something we saw in 2006 or 2008. short of that, the era of republican speakers could last for a long time. okay, that does it for "the cycle." martin bashir, it's all yours. >> thank you and good afternoon. it's wednesday, february the 20th. if at first you can't succeed, just call him a socialist. >> sequester scare. >> sequester looming. >> 700,000 civilian employees could be furloughed. >> this is all b.s. >> this is not an an traction. people will lose their
in a hypothetical matchup with clinton. so i think while he's got some making up to do, i think with the grassroots among republicans, ultimately i think he's in good standing because ultimately i think people will think he'd make a pretty good national candidate. >> let's stipulate, though, that mitt romney was not up against exactly stellar group of candidates to claim that mantle and they stretched it out and really wanted an alternative. but chris christie also much more skilled politician than mitt romney. >> john, christie's popularity has not worn very well with the great glenn beck. listen to him mope with the chris christie that he used to know on bill o'reilly. here he comes. >> i feel about rand paul about the way i used to feel about chris christie. i thought chris christie was really good and i ignored a few things that kind of bothered me. but now i don't like chris christie. >> in-depth analysis there. >> but can republicans -- are they smart enough to draw a line between a 74% approval rating and glenn beck's sdis approval? >> i mean that's assuming that glenn beck still has the sam
would think twice if clinton was in the race. if she passes on it, it wouldn't mean a return to all male fields. kirst kirsten gillibran and amy klobuchar. this is a trend that will only go on in the weeks to come. democrats are leaning on them more than ever. and there are now a record number of female democrats 16 in what has been a long incubator of presidential candidates. the senate. and in the senate the majority is not comprised of white males. so one way or another, there will be at least one woman running for a serious campaign for the democratic nomination in 2016. and there'll only be more in the elections after that. expect similar if slower progress on the republican side. women have made strides there, too, but not as dramatically. only four republican women in the senate today. although the gop has the edge when it comes to female governors. this is what the future looks like. presidential fields that look a little more like america. that does it for "the cycle" today. martin, take it away. >> good afternoon. it's wednesday february 6th. and speaker john boehner has spoken
't know. of course, hillary clinton came before the senate and gave testimony. she was very clear as best she could be. and, you know, the interesting thing is that we've never filibustered a d.o.d. appoint candidate. you know, the question becomes when will we leave politics at the door? why not give this president the kind of defense team that he needs? we want to make sure that we make a strong showing with regard to the entire world and one of the key positions is defense. i got to tell you. i'm glad that senator mccain said that he's not going to be part of this filibuster. one of the things we also have to keep in mind is that our secretary nominee is one who has -- hagel has been one who has two purple hearts. i get tired of us pushing aside folks who go out there and give their blood, sweat, and tears and put their lives on the line for us. next thing you know we're blocking them from trying to serve their country. a lot of people say -- tell this president we want you to be bipartisan. here he is reaching out to the republican party saying i want one of my key people in a key pos
mouth. >> there's barack obama. there's hillary clinton, and they're all taking drinks of water during speeches. gee took it right to obama. >> this was the best post-state of the union address. >> that we only care about rich people. >> republicans are stuck responding to have the fictional image of obama that they've created. >> mr. president, i still live in the same working class neighborhood i grew up in. my neighbors aren't millionaires. why would you brag about that love for your neighbors when you were on record trying to move away from those neighbors. >> as you're feeling away for a new party strategy doesn't work, paul ryan doesn't work? that's not going to happen. >> don't worry, senator rubio, nobody noticed that you gave a speech. >> let's get right to our panel now. professor james peterson is director of african studies at lehigh university and jared bernstein is an msnbc contributor and former adviser to vice president joe biden. and we are watching live pictures of a cloture vote in the senate that will determine the path forward for secretary of defense nominee chuck
with the incumbent president like they did back in the '90s when it was clinton versus gingrich in this sort of thing. and i think the question is just how much pressure can be brought to bear on the republicans to help move this thing forward. >> clarence page, karen finney, and the great luke russert, thank you so much all of you. >>> next, will the supreme court roll the clock back to a time when fear and intimidation ruled the ballot box? stay with us. >> i received so much more than my fair share of good fortune in my life, and i'm so grateful to the academy for this beautiful honor. >> so you didn't have my bet. you didn't like him as lincoln? >> no, i didn't. he's not from this country. he had an accent i could detect. i don't know if other people could detect it. i've always kept my eye on her... but with so much health care noise, i didn't always watch out for myself. with unitedhealthcare, i get personalized information and rewards for addressing my health risks. but she's still going to give me a heart attack. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. ♪ they hatin' ♪ patrolling they
